Wacky Turkish Postcards- Adja Pekan


For a person easily charmed by silliness - like me- this postcard was like stumbling on the Mona Lisa in a garage sale. It has a lot to do with the upturned hand. It is the those platform shoes and the pose. Too  much and too strange.

The model is Ajda Pekkan, a singer and actress who has apparently been gulping beer mugs from the fountain of youth since the early 1970s.

Elixirs, face creams,  eating plenty of broccoli  or the blood of virgins may have very little  to do with her well-preserved appearance.  Take a  look at the photos below and view the miracles of cosmetic surgery.

Ayşe Ajda Pekkan (born February 12, 1946 in Istanbul, Turkey) is a Turkish pop music singer and actress. Through a career spanning five decades thus far, Ajda has released more than 20 albums and with Sezen Aksu, is the most commercially successful female Turkish music artist with the sales of over 30 million copies worldwide. She is nicknamed the "Superstar" of Turkish pop music. Although famed for her music, Ajda started her career as an actress with appearances in almost 50 films. During her music career, Ajda has recorded songs in 9 languages. Apart from Turkish, she is also fluent in English and French. She also knows Azerbaijani and Italian.

 The many faces of Ajda


    Today, at age 63, mind you.
